- Turkish MP is warning that Ghana could experience serious terrorist attack
- The MP says there are five terrorist schools currently operating in Ghana
Turkish authorities are warning that there is a possible security threat regarding a terrorist attack on Ghana.
According to the Turkish deputy speaker of parliament, Fellullah Terrorist Organization (FETO)-linked schools were not only a threat to Turkey but also to Ghana.
The Republican People’s Party (CHP) MP, Yasar Tuzun, in a meeting on Wednesday with the head of Ghana-Turkey interparliamentary Friendship Groups, disclosed that there was the presence of FETO-linked schools in Ghana.
Mr Tuzun in his interaction reiterated that there are a total of five FETO-linked schools that are very active and operating in Ghana.
"These schools are employing the terrorist organizations' members and are serving the traitorous aim of FETO under the mask of education," he said.
Mr Tuzun added that, "These schools were not only a source of threat for the security of Turkey but also for the countries where they are active."
FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen, is said to have orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 250 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.
The Turkish authorities in Ankara accused FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary in 2016.
The Turkish MP said the Ghanaian authorities were aware of the numerous threats.
"I want to give you a guarantee related to FETO schools; we are working on it," he said.
"Our president takes this issue very seriously, he is also working on it. We are also ready to give the proper response to you. Turkey is Ghana, Ghana is Turkey. Anything that affects Turkey affects Ghana as well. If Turkey is not happy, Ghana is also not happy," the MP added.
